You and your smile hold a strange invitation Somehow it seems We've shed our dream but we're Time after time in a room full of strangers Out of the blue, suddenly you were there Wherever I go you're the glow of temptation, Glancing my way in the grey of the dawn And always your smile holds that strange invitation Then you are gone Where oh where have you gone How long must I live in a world of illusion Be where you are so near yet so far, apart Hoping you'll say with a sweet invitation Where have you been, darling come in Into my heart
